Newsflash, a Cubs game in the local market will get better ratings than the Yankees/Red Sox rain delay update. I wish they would do some sort of regional thing, instead of this all Red Sox, all Yankee thing. Its like the entire world revolves between these teams. Especially the Red Sox. The new trendy thing is the Red Sox. They are everywhere. Ben Affleck, Jimmy Fallon, Fever Pitch, ring ceremonies everywhere, people complaining Pedro didn't show up, etc. Its like the Red Sox were the only team that hasn't won a world series in a while. (The White Sox curse is longer, for example, and yet there is no pining, movies about them and such.) Why no excessive coverage of the White Sox? After all, they are a bigger market than Boston (just city wise. I realize theres a lot more Cubs fans) And there are plenty of Cubs fans too, and there curse is even longer? Why no media blitz? Its rather silly. I wish they would realize there are 28 other teams worth covering. The Red Sox and Yanks aren't even in first place. How bout them Blue Jays?
So, you would rather have the Cubs on WGN and nothing on ESPN rather than Yanks/Sox on ESPN and the Cubs on WGN?? I would rather have the more games.
